I just found a bug in Google's Calculator: The query "1 kbps in bps" does not yield the correct answer of 1000 bps. The incorrect answer, 1024 bps, normally would be correct for computing in general, but it is not correct for networking. For whatever reason, network equipment manufacturers, much like hard drive manufacturers, use the normal SI definitions. I sent feedback to Google's customer support, we'll see what they say...
